Windows 7: Random restart problem

Random restart problem (And some more issues)


Lately my computer is having an issue.. it randomly restarts.. the last one happened today..
I can't tell the frequency really..
Is there anything to start with ?

*Edit: I also have a problem which I reported about it here as well, so maybe these 2 problems are related to each other, the second problem is that I have random USB devices disconnection, I hear the sound of USB disconnection, and all the USB devices stop working and the lights of them are off (mouse and keyboard), and after a few seconds I hear the USB connection sound and they come back to life..

Also there are random freezes.. I think my pc is dying

It sounds as if the USB hardware issue could be causing everything. By default Windows will reset on a hard error. I'm not a PC hardware guru but I'd check the USB hub and related controllers. It sounds like something to be done in the shop unless you know somebody you trust to poke around with multi-meters inside the box.
